Career Development and Employment Services, with funding from Equity Office, organised the "Living and Creating a Dream" career event (September 2012) to encourage and inspire Māori and Pacific students along their education and career journeys.
Speakers at the event are Māori and Pasifika graduates, who generously share their personal journeys and continuing quest to make their dreams a reality. They also give students insight into ways of staying motivated during the challenging moments of their degree.
Here are highlights from three Pasifika speakers at the event.
